Nickabella made a DEELISH card using LULU KETTO!  The coloring is fantab using our very own LYRA colored pencils and mineral spirits.  She also used our absolutely FAVORITE punch (we use this punch in almost every card) called the retro flower punch.  Nicky also used a gorgeous quickutz embossing folder on the top half to give texture and punch!  I am sold out of these but they will be up again soon!!  LOVE THEM!

Danabella made a stunning card using STELLA WITH AN OLIVE ON TOP, colored in with copics finished of with bella’s bonbons.. BEEYOTIFUL!

Karenabella made a stunning card using Stella’s Chariot (LOVE THAT STAMP) colored in with COPICS and using swiss dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug and bon bons.. YUMMALISH!

LINDABELLA made a gorgeous card using  Stella with an OLIVE on top using LYRAS of course and mineral spirits, BASIC GREY WISTERIA paper ( so gorgeous and soft).. maisy’s polkadots a gorgeous addition to the basic grey paper and EK SUCCESS scalloped scallop border punch (LOVE THOSE PUNCHES SO MUCH!!)  P.S. IF YOU LOOOVE LINDA THE WAY WE LOOOOVE LINDA, please pop over to her bloggypoo and wish her a BIG happy birFday in a comment..  it is a special one for her and we want her to know she is LOOOOOOVED!!!! MWAH Linda.. happy happy happy birFday!!!!

SARAHBELLA made a gorgeous layout using Jenni Bowlin papers, Cosmo Cricket paper, Jenni Bowlin bingo cards.. YUMMMMMMM.. is there not tons to see?  I just keep on looking for more goodies in the layout!

Shannanabella made the cutest card using today’s favorite image…. STELLA WITH AN OLIVE ON TOP!! LOL (you all planned this right??? or all of you just want a dRiNkY).  Love love love the card, the dots, the coloring the paypah!  GORGEOUS!!!
